We're planning a trip to CR in February. We'd like to spend a few nights in either Samara and/or Montezuma/Malpais/Saint Teresa. We will be coming from Monteverde and will have our own car.
I've read/heard that the drive from Monteverde to Samara is about 5 hours. If we were to drive all the way to Malpais, how long would the drive be? Would it be better to take the ferry?
